Lou Pinella, after another relief pitching disaster on Tuesday, told the press that he was planning on starting a reliever in Wednesday game and then would bring in a starting pitcher after a couple of innings. He decided against it when he got back to the park on Wednesday, but it was an interesting idea. My question is has anyone attempted this strategy on a scale of more than 1 game? I've thought before about how some starting pitchers have a hard time with the first inning and wondered if this strategy would work, as it might just be that they are too jacked up and would benefit from coming in during the second. Please discuss.
Also, if you weren't aware, SPIN magazine came out with their Top 100 CD's of the past 20 Years. (1985-2005) Over the next week, I will be putting up my list, so be thinking of your Top 10, as it should be interesting.
